there are tax advantages available for donating stock directly to
St. Francis. Moving the stock directly to St. Francis allows you to
take a full tax deduction on the value of the stock at the time of
the donation regardless of acquisition cost. This means you can also
avoid the costs of selling stock and taxes you might pay on the
capital gains. Please consult your tax advisor to ensure this works
for your personal tax situation.
